I don't know what the problem is. It would have been a try for sure

James Patterson
He let go of the tackle when he realized he didn't have the ball. The player had plenty of time to grab it and score, but he messed up. There weren't any other players around, so he just messed it up. It wasn't a penalty goal. Plus, he ran around two of his own teammates, so it should have been a pe... View More

But not as bad as when a player gets put on report and a penalty for accidentally tripping a defender.

The Dolphins got penalized because Johnston used his teammate to avoid a tackle at the beginning. Souths basically handed them six points and shouldn't have let it happen.
Damien Ryan
Man, there have been 10 penalty tries given this year that were way more questionable than this one... I still remember back at the beginning of the season when Canberra got screwed over by one that wasn't even in the same ballpark.
Greg Carpenter
This game is a total joke! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

How can they award a penalty try and claim he would have scored if he reached the ball, mate? He did reach the ball and he ended up dropping it.
Jonathan Thomas
Oh boy, that decision was a real doozy, but Annersley will probably find a way to spin it as just fine.

No problem, why all the commotion, tackled without the ball and no opposition players around, he scores easily.

South's player Johnson was playing a little game of tag with his own teammate before the ball reached the fullback, so no try for them anyway!

Should've been a penalty and maybe even a sin bin, but definitely not a penalty try, mate.

Fingers crossed Ikea starts coughing up their fair share of taxes like the rest of us Aussies do...

Our Council bloody well needs to put in more effort to bring these types of businesses to Geelong. The big guns like IKEA, Costco, and all that are already thriving in Melbourne, so it's a bit of a shocker that they still haven't set up shop here after 30 years. You can't exactly make them come here... View More

We definitely need another one of these in Geelong. With all the growth and new centers opening up, I don't see why we shouldn't have one.
Louis Brown
I'd be all about that!
It's not the council's job to convince businesses to come to Geelong. They just need to make sure the paperwork and permits for building are easy to get. Costco and IKEA need a lot of space and car parking, so they'd probably do best near the Go Kart place in Lara. If I owned land there, I'd definit... View More

CoGG is a joke. They're blowing mad cash on these massive buildings that can't even attract tenants in Geelong. And don't even get me started on the ridiculous amount they're dropping on their council childcare centers. What a total waste of money!

What's the point of risking a penalty or getting kicked out of the game in this day and age? Mitchell should have been penalized, it's not the players' job to act like refs. Keeping cool and being professional is what wins games, not acting like jerks. Acting tough and being aggressive by pushing pe... View More

Okay, so if that's the deal, then QLD shouldn't get in trouble for tackling Latrell or anyone else off the ball in game 3. That's just plain stupid!
Colin Anderson
I call him Latrine Mitchell, that pretty much sums up who he is. Latrine, Luai, Cleary, and a couple others are like the faces of NSW RL, they're like protected species cause they're on such a high pedestal.
Gregory Washington
They ain't gonna get no respect from Trell on the football field. He's gonna keep doing his thing and they ain't gonna do nothing about it.
William Johnson
Queensland straight up killed it without Reece Walsh. He better be benched for the next game. Dude ain't cut out for State of Origin.

Walsh is always flopping around trying to trick the refs into giving him penalties. Some refs buy it, others are wise to his antics. It just goes to prove that some players are sneakier than others!
Thomas Washington
There was just one lone ranger on the turf, woohoo for the blues and for Latrell! 🀣
Brett Whittaker
Qld players don't start fights. They have better manners than the sneaky tactics nsw uses. It's obvious. If anything, this just shows that the refs were totally on nsw's team πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Dane Eldridge is chugging the Cool-Aid and going overboard with the NSW hype after just one win, following in the footsteps of many NSW reporters before him. Thanks for reminding us Queenslanders that we're the lovable underdogs!
Brett Robertson
Walsh's performance for game 2 shows he should be left out for game 3 as he struggled and is better suited for club level play. Origin is for the more experienced players.

Somehow Putrell believes his off-field good deeds balance out his on-field antics.

I only made it halfway through this total crap before I rolled my eyes and moved on. Dane Eldridge deserves a Pulitzer for this.

Mitchell is still the same old Mitchell.

Didn't want any Queenslanders ending up in the naughty corner for clapping back!

Sparking drama through media. So chic!

I haven't seen anyone talking about that sneaky shove from the NSW player. I saw it go down and it was totally gross. I was waiting for some kind of clapback, but it never came. Oops, looks like it's finally being brought up now.
